90s defensive dmen

Criteria for 90s defensive dmen: played at least 5 seasons (with let's say 60+ games in each) in the 90s and were LOW SCORING dmen. This means no Lidstrom or Bourque or MacInnis or Pronger or whichever other elite dman people like to name. Of course some defensive dmen are good at moving the puck up even if they don't put up pts which is fine. Here's an aggregate list of a tonne of them. Obviously not all these guys are great but how would you rank a few of 10 or 13 maybe? There's the big three, Stevens/Foote/Hatcher (I'll exclude a few of the big 80s ones like Langway/Lowe/MacCrimmon). Now obviously some of these guys are not defensive dmen, they were just dmen who were lower scoring and I realize a few like Brisebois are borderline and I'll remove them if someone insists but I just wanted to make a big list to help jog memory.
